I think you completely misunderstand me. I do not suggest that college is a great place to learn and mature. In fact, I think the opposite to be true for the average student. As a professor, I wish half of the students at my university would get jobs instead of go to college. They are not there for the right reasons and it is bad for all parties involved.
Read my response above for a more thorough explanation. I think we are more on the same page than you think. I was merely responding to the comment that professors aren't what they once were. They are indeed more highly trained than ever. This does NOT necessarily make college a good place to be. In fact, easy money for all students to go to college is what is ruining it! Just like the housing bubble.
